Re: Fast Scanning Track Icons.

I'm still getting confused! Screen Shot 2020-07-30 at 11.40.22 AM.png I can see three guitar tracks , but where oh where in my brain does it say WHICH ONE IS RHYTHM/FUZZ/SOLO blah blah So for most common frequent items ( except strings and horns for real composers) GT, VO, PC, KB there are numbers 1...

Re: Fast Scanning Track Icons. add'l DEPREC versions for unused

These are altered versions with a black bar and an X. I use these for old tracks that I'm not using but not sure about deleting yet. Hoarder lol. Screen Shot 2020-07-23 at 9.15.56 AM.png The zip has TIFF versions that should work in Logic . If someone wants the Keynote versions for mods, just reply ...

Re: Fast Scanning Track Icons.

[Here's a couple more, I get LOST with dozens of tracks, many of which I am never going back to, so I am experimenting with grouping whatever I'm not working with at the bottom under these icons ( download the ZIP AT bottom : Screen Shot 2020-07-16 at 9.22.28 AM.png Screen Shot 2020-07-16 at 9.22.37...

Re: Fast Scanning Track Icons.

Here is a easier to use, separate icon version with 4 basic icon groups. GT DR KB VO plus generic non-group CUE and DEPREC (X) ; DEPREC is meant to be a grab bag of ? trax. I'm finding it much faster to recognize what's where, I can see from peripheral vision "there's an opened stack of guitars...

Fast Scanning Track Icons.

As I'm getting older my visual scanning speed is going dooowwwwwn. If I look on a shelf with 29 objects looking for the one microphone, it take maybe 1 -2 seconds instead of the maybe half second twenty years ago. So scanning the edge of my project for "Which is the guitar ?" Becomes more ...

https://freesound.org is a totally free delight, tens of thousands of free drum machines, obscure accordion samples, weird synth hits.... waste an afternoon-- it's worth it!!

Re: How to play all cells/scenes from start to end

Hopefully the geniuses that programmed Live Loops will grasp the utility for a songwriter. To be able to juggle section order easily, and then listen to a partial assembly (I'm thinking 2-5 scene groups, even having to have them in order would he adequate) without fooling around with watching loop i...

Re: How to play all cells/scenes from start to end

Thanks for explaining. I'm have no familiarity with competitor looping DAWs so maybe I still don't understand. It seems to me the next step in ease of modularity after the Arrangement feature in 10.4 would be use of live loops to play scenes and groups of scenes flexibly , sometimes one at at time,o...

How to play all cells/scenes from start to end

I'm missing something here, I want to play through all the scenes starting from the first one on left in order to the last one on right. Without cueing each scene successively as they all play. even though I select the scene numbers, when scene one's cell completes it loops rather than going on to n...

Re: Fit Tempo to Improvisation

Just thinking about tempos, I've been working a LOT on trying to record something "live" and then establish a tempo track adhering to the feel. It's far more difficult than just picking a tempo and playing with the click. mechanical tempo is unnatural, only been done for about 30-40 years....

Re: Fit Tempo to Improvisation

I've been doing some recording free tempo with an acoustic guitar and then recording a track of claves along with the recorded guitar , but quarter notes make it easier for beat detection to create a tempo track than one note mate every measure. If your one per measure click is a little off it will ...

Use Audio Interface Inserts for sends eg for External Tuner/Amp/Etc

I have an external tuner I prefer for tuning guitars , basses etc. But I go direct into interface and don't use amps. I have a Behringer Euphoria with INSERTS on each of the 4 tracks, and I learned how to use the inserts as a send for the tuner. Simply take a 2 conductor regular mono guitar cable an...

Re: creating midi file from Logic's metronome [SOLVED]

Then it looks like it might be a constant offset time-wise (setting aside rounding errors). I think it is linked to relying on the IAC bus. Instead of the procedure above, do the following: Open an empty project, create a software instrument track (Drum Kit Designer is a good candidate), go to the ...

Re: Don't Be Like Me; Dumb Mistakes That Cost Me Hours The track that wouldn't mute

That’s actually the valuable part after thinking about it-how not to do that. It raises 2 questions: 1) what would be the output routing of an existing track Such that it’s mixed in with the new solo ( I thought) track I think it might have something to do with what’s coming through the interface 2)...

Don't Be Like Me; Dumb Mistakes That Cost Me Hours The track that wouldn't mute

Today I wasted about an hour trying to figure out why a GTR track with a region WOULDN'T MUTE. I tried turning OFF the track, eventually even deleted region and the whole track and it still kept sounding!! I tried soloing the bass track and it still sounded. If it seems obvious, it took me a. w h. i...

Home made loops don't come out like they were when stored in loop lib

I'm trying to store a mono recorded audio acoustic rhythm guitar. chord pattern in a 4 bar loop. 1) I record to a mono track and normalize to loudness = (-23) I note in region inspector "gain" is set to + ( some number, say 4.5) 2) Bounce to new track to try to 'burn in" volume gain. ...
